The chief medical interest of this volume lies in the fact that Dr. William Redfern, surgeon in the navy, convict, and friend of Macquarie, is portrayed as its hero. His arrest and conviction on the basis of sympathy for mutineers, his arrival in Sydney in 1803, and his development as leading surgeon in the colony make him an interesting medical historical character. A note indicates that this is the first Australian historical play to be published in book form.
